Are You Making the Most of Your Production Planning Process?

Press release from the issuing company

WhatTheyThink webinar, sponsored by Fujifilm, to discuss Planning's hidden opportunities for profitability

Lexington, Kentucky USA -- WhatTheyThink today announced the opportunity for industry professionals to attend a free printing industry educational webinar, Production Planning: Hidden Opportunities for Profitability. The session will be led by WhatTheyThink Senior Editor Cary Sherburne and held Wednesday, July 27th, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT (-4 GMT).

No-charge registration is available at the registration page.

"As printers work to make the production process more efficient," said Sherburne, "are they paying appropriate attention to the job planning process?  Our panelists will discuss how they have automated and standardized production planning with positive benefits that flow through the entire workflow for improved profitability."

Sherburne will be joined by:

  • Randy Jamerson, Prepress Systems Administrator EBSCO Media
  • Ted Straus, Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, Suttle-Straus, Inc.
  • Brett Donelan, Pre-media Manager, Suttle-Straus, Inc.

"As more companies adopt web-to-print and print MIS to gain efficiencies," said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink, "the planning process is often overlooked. Who has the planning responsibility? What tools do they have at their disposal? How flexible is the production plan, since we know there are likely to be changes as a job proceeds through the shop?  We are pleased the Fujifilm is sponsoring this event, allowing us to offer this important educational session to attendees at no cost."
Attendees will be able to participate in a live question and answer session to get the most from the experience and will be able to view and listen to the presentation using a standard Internet browser with audio streamed via computer.
